Hi guys,

With only one tab open in Firefox, the attached jpg is what I see in my task manager.

My desktop is extremely laggy for obvious reasons....but dont know why.

Confusing to see so many child tasks under the parent.

Anyone know what I need to do to over come the general slowness etc on my box.

Thanks in advance

Hire staff instead of your blind leading the blind approach would be appreciated.

Case in point, password security regarding access to my Last Pass vault!

Through one of your updates, my master password to access my Last Pass account is shown which allows anyone to access my last pass vault. Your instructions are useless and incorrect and your real support is a joke.

If you have an accurate solution that applies to your CURRENT version, I would appreciate your help.

As a FYI, Chrome and the other normal browsers have retained the requirement to provide their master password to gain access to my Last Pass vault.

Aside from this issue and lack of real support, your browser is great. If I can's get a solution from you, I will have to stop using your browser.

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

Hello, when I click on link with middle mouse button it will open that link on next tab but doesn't "jump" there, which is fine. But when I do the same with pdf links, it will automaticly "jumps" on the pfd file. And I don't want to. I want to open it like normal link (on next tab in background), because I have a lot of pdf files to open, and this makes it difficult to do it qucikly. Before some weeks this wasn't a probem, it started now.

The problem is as follows:

Every time I load some multilagual web page (Aliexpress, prestashop.com fox example) Mozilla loads the page in different language. After I change the language and load a new page from the site, the language is changed again to a random one. Every time I click a button or link, the language is changed.

Cleared cache, and cookies and everithing multiple times. After 3-4 days it does the same thing. Tried fresh install - after a while starts to do the same thing. Installed Firefox Developer Edition - after 6 months starts to do the same thing. Installed Waterfox on different PC - same as Firefox Developer - after 6 months starts to do the same thing.

Does anyone have the same problem? Why is it happening? Is it only me?

I use Firefox on multiple devices with synch. I don't want Firefox to ask to save logins, never ever anywhere. :) On my laptop, the option is greyed out and checked, i.e. set to ask to save passwords. So this settings syncs to the other PC's. When running about:config and looking at the option there, it is set to true and also here set to true without possibility to change.

Clues? :)

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

Hi,

First off, I have only ever used Firefox in English. I don't speak enough of any other language well enough to do otherwise. I booted up my gaming PC today and opened Firefox, and the language on my menus, bookmarks toolbar, and almost all Firefox UI has randomly changed to what looks like it might be Greek. I can't change it back. It looks from the settings page that the selected language is English, but again I don't speak or read Greek so I have no idea what's going on here. I've run a virus scan, nothing came up. I tried clearing the Firefox startup cache, that didn't help. It's only the Firefox menus that are in Greek, webpages are still showing up in English like they should.

Can somebody help me fix this please? I use Firefox as my main browser on all of my PCs and I don't want to have to switch to using Chrome on one of them. Thanks!

I'm a hobby-programmer not trained. My doc is local php file, saving calendar events to text files, run on localhost. The field in question is a line number on my calendar. Javascript uses that number to load another input with the calendar entry so I can confirm that it's the correct line before submitting it to PHP for deletion. I have unchecked 'Remember search and form history', ran 3 cleaners, restarted the computer and the data is (correctly) not displayed. But it is not deleted. When I rechecked 'Remember search and form history' the old input data comes back. If I change id, field name, javascript function name and variable names the history disappears but when I restore those names, the history is back. I want to know why that input can't be permanently deleted. Windows 10, Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)

I will post an image to show what is happening when I use the paste in the toolbar search item. I did a retore to defaults and it fixed the issue until the next day after a reboot of the pc and it is back. Anybody else see this behavior and know how to fix it? Thanks, Dave

p.s. I wrote up a larger version of this and tried to share data which didn't work automatically and wiped out my story. :(
